Neither here nor there...

But, dear lord, is this the slowest, most miserable, most self-congratulatory Oscars telecast ever? I'm ready to scream. I hope the seat-fillers were all given Valium or Vicodin before the show started...

Just give out the damn awards already!!

Wow, I had totally forgotten the oscars were on until I happened to look at your blog.

Is it bad that I only recognized five or six names in the "artists we lost" montage?

I didn't watch the oscars this year. I didn't watch them last year either. Before that though, I used to watch them every year, throwing elaborate watching parties with friends and soaking in every minute. I never missed them. Now that I don't watch them anymore, I don't miss them...

I haven't watched them since Billy Crystal.. (and not really even then, as they're on LATE. Really late...) But there was a Norwegian winner, yay! Admittedly, I'd never heard of her before, I haven't seen film (The Danish Poet) and she lives in Canada - but still... Hurrah! Right?!

I wish I hadn't watched. Kristen is a huge fan - otherwise I never watched the Oscars.

I watched- I'm a movie fanatic. And I agree with you. I don't get it- why don't the condense the awards that the public really cares about, and just televise an hour? There are maybe 6 awards I care about, plus the pre-show red carpet- and that's it!
